My name is Vijay Bandaru and I am an Indian.

Our world is so small, filled with emotions, competitions, games and politics. I believe in sayings such as : “United we stand, divided we fall” and “It’s easy to pull down but not easy to build up”. So collaboration and knowledge sharing are the key to success and to manage the expectations in a win-win mode. Collaborative culture should be developed top to bottom in the organisations to enjoy the success and make it long lasting. I always work towards that direction and I also encourage and support the people whom I work with in the same way.

My core values that I follow in personal and professional life all the time are: Honesty, Transparency, Positive Thinking, Validated Learning, Share and Care, Receptive.


I started my software career in 1998 as a software developer and worked on few ERP, e-Commerce, client server, web projects and also mobile projects. I played various roles in my career that include: Tech Lead, Project Lead, Project Manager, Senior Delivery Manager and Agile Coach. I also have a strong technical background that helps me to contribute to the teams in technical guidance and engineering practices coaching

I started my agile journey in 2009 and played product owner, Scrum Master and Developer roles and I thoroughly understand the challenges in these roles. I was fortunate to be part of a large scale agile transformation in a product based organisation using LeSS framework. I have gained great experience as an Agile Coach during this transformation.

I also started working in a product management role in order to gain practical experience and understand the challenges of the role. I have been learning and enjoying in this role.
